Hustler Magazine Publisher Larry Flynt is offering $1 million to anyone who can prove they had an affair with Republican presidential candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry, TMZ is reporting.

Flynt has bought space for his ads in local Texas papers. The ads ask, “Have you had a gay or straight sexual encounter with Governor Rick Perry?”

Salon.com obtained a copy of the entire ad, which appears in the most recent issue of the Austin Chronicle.

“LARRY FLYNT and HUSTLER MAGAZINE will pay you up to $1 million if we choose to publish your verified story and use your material,” reads the ad’s sub-head.

A Ron Paul supporter, Robert Morrow, took out similar ads in Texas requesting information about Perry’s sexual history this summer. (RELATED: And now, a word from the ‘Committee Against Sexual Hypocrisy’)

Flynt has a history of offering cash for salacious stories. In 1998 he offered money for information on President Clinton and he has offered rewards for sexual information on any member of Congress.
